Perfect Power could test Classic claims at Greenham | Race News

Perfect Power could begin their three-year campaign in the Greenham Stakes as Relations look to gauge their classic aspirations.

Coach Richard Fahey is looking ahead to the Watership Down Stud-sponsored Group Three contest at Newbury on April 16 as he fits the bill on two important points.

Perfect Power will not be penalized for their two Group 1 victories in the Prix Morny and Middle Park Stakes. And since he has yet to run beyond six furlongs, Fahey would rather try Greenham’s distance of seven furlongs than go straight for a mile.

“He’s in great form. We’re very happy with him. Physically he’s done very well and we’ll probably start him at Greenham,” Fahey said.

“He enters Group One without penalty. It’s the only Group Three at the start of the year where he enters without penalty.

“Going from six to seven would be a better fit than going from six to one mile. We’ll have an idea after that.”

Son of Ardad, owned by Sheikh Rashid Dalmook Al Maktoum, ranges 11-1 to 20-1 for the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket on April 30. He also holds a stake in Irish 2,000 Guineas three weeks later.
